If, by chance, you don’t take me up on my bet to ward off cold and flu season by regular administrations of Superhero Miso Soup, and you do fall prey to a wintertime bug. Never fear. The ultimate sick-fighting tonic is here.

Ultimate Sick Fighting Tonic

To make one cup:
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
4 cloves raw garlic, mashed well
juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon raw honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 dropperfull (or 1/2 teaspoon) of echinacea tincture

Mash all ingredients together in a cup. Boil 1 cup of water and pour into the same cup. Cover and let steep for 10 minutes. Drink the liquid and eat the remaining ginger and garlic. (Add more raw honey to taste)

Potent, powerful and oddly delicious this little cocktail can be consumed on its own… OR if you really want to kick your cold goodbye, boil another 1/2 cup of ginger with 5 cups of water, simmer and cook for about 30 minutes. Then add the hot ginger-water to a hot bath, sit in the bath and drink the tonic. Get out, wrap yourself in as many blankets as you have and sweat out all the last hopes of your sickness. ‘Nuff said,
